Overview

One of the more versatile injectable wrinkle fillers on the current market, Belotero is a hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler that treats everything from fine lines and wrinkles to deeper folds and creases for a smooth, youthful result. A longer-lasting dermal filler, cosmetic surgeons Dr. Erik Nuveen and Dr. Courtney Caplin of Cosmetic Surgery Affiliates in Oklahoma City typically use Belotero to treat patients who still have good skin elasticity, but are starting to see wrinkles in areas like the forehead or the common nasolabial folds (popularly known as smile lines). In addition to filling wrinkles, Belotero stimulates the production of collagen and increase skin hydration for improved skin health.

Administering BELOTERO®

Belotero is often a single-session treatment that lasts up to 30 minutes, sometimes even less. Patients may experience pain is similar to any other injection treatments. A topical anesthetic may be applied to minimize discomfort during the session. The amount of medication, formulation and injection spot vary considering each patient’s circumstances. The entire process is repeated every 6 to 12 months as the formulation is naturally absorbed by the body.

What to Expect

Since this is a noninvasive treatment, patients will be able to go back to their normal routine shortly after the injection. Some swelling and redness may be present, but these usually subside after a few hours. Strenuous activities must be avoided for at least 1 day. The results are evident immediately, and can last from 6 months to 1 year. Generally, the skin treated will appear smooth with a rejuvenated glow that makes facial features look young and fresh.

Expected Cost

Each syringe can cost between $400 and $600, and a single treatment may use more than 1 syringe depending on the severity of the case. Sometimes more than one treatment is necessary. During the initial consultation, the doctor will analyze the patient’s cosmetic concerns and will determine the necessary amount of medication needed to attain the desired results.

Belotero FAQs

Other Products?

There are a number of available injectable fillers that are hyaluronic based in the market today. However, Belotero is best known for its function to correct severe wrinkles commonly found around the nasolabial folds. Other fillers will be discussed during the initial consultation with the doctor to highlight the advantages of each, and the best approach to the patient’s facial features and cosmetic concerns.

How Safe?

Belotero is hyaluronic-acid-based filler that is FDA approved. It is backed with years of extensive testing for its function and safety. Since hyaluronic acid is a substance processed naturally in the body, it is a solution that integrates well with the underlying tissues, and provides great results in terms of adding volume and promoting skin hydration.

Botox or Belotero?

BOTOX works in a way that once injected, the skin will appear smoother and softer because the solution is a muscle relaxant. It freezes the muscles beneath the skin where it was injected. However, it doesn’t add any volume to the area. Belotero, like other injectable derma fillers, can provide the same results as BOTOX, but works in a way that it adds more volume so that it stretches the skin to make it appear more youthful and smoother with wrinkles becoming less evident.

Do I Need Reinjection?

In most cases, yes. Since Belotero is made of hyaluronic acid, a substance that occurs naturally within the body, the injected solution normally gets absorbed. It is recommended to maintain injections every 6 months to 1 year to supplement the loss of volume. Some patients initially opt for derma fillers to see if cosmetic enhancements will look and feel before proceeding with more permanent and invasive procedures such as facelifts.
